self-portraits in opalite linkfall earrings


I made armandii an earring set recently and couldn't resist taking photos in them (don't worry, I always clean them after). The jewelry pieces I make are my babies, I have such a hard time letting them go! ;-) Oh, and I started an etsy account -- don't have much up yet, but I'm planning on making a bunch of simple earrings because I think they'll sell better. This time I want to keep trying until it works. I made two pairs today, though they didn't turn out simple at all -- one took the better part of two hours and the other took one. *rolls eyes at self*

I have discovered Burt's Bees lip shimmer and my friends, I actually like it! I'm collecting all the colors :D I've always hated lip color because it tastes nasty and feels goopy on my lips, but this actually feels like lip gloss, very light, and tastes peppermint YUM! I usually blot, but I wanted intense colors here.

love how the shadow of the branch falls on my face

---


I love that constellation of moles (the stretched diamond shape) and almost always try to keep it in photos when I crop. ;-)

---


I have no idea why I haven't used this stone as a backdrop before.

---


hmm. I may be too pale to properly show off these earrings.

---


now they're in shadow, that's better.

---


*smiles at you*

---


*blurry giggles* because who holds still when giggling?

---


I love how this indirect lighting makes my eyes look so deep

---


this one shows just how FULL my lips are

---


I. LOVE. This. One!

I need an updated selfportraiture icon (new camera, longer hair) but I need another person and another camera for that, argh!

for some reason that makes me shy! *boggles at self* but I would definitely love to do that sometime. I had so much fun the last time we hung out!

I am a Burts lip shimmer ADDICT. I usually wear Raisin, but I used to put the Champagne color under my eyes, like you do with your white shadow? The peppermint cooled my puffs and made me all shimmery. But then I gave it away to my mom and haven't done that since.

ouch! wouldn't the peppermint oil hurt? I guess I just have very sensitive eyes.

Yay! I am glad you are now on Etsy! I see you are getting many views on your stuff, too - tht's great! I find that the forums there are helpful when selling, too.

I also love the minty lipshimmers from BB! :)

Yay for pretty pictures and jewelry, too! :)

I checked out the forums after this and did learn some helpful tips, so thanks for suggesting it!

While I know nothing of Lip Shimmer, be it from Burt's Bee or other places, I do know wonderful photography when i see it.

I truly think you should talk about your eyes more when you take a shot. So very soulful.

Your lips are indeed full, wonderful angles you have of them as well.

Of course, the smile and giggle are my favorite, mostly because it is a smile all the way to your eyes, which so many people can't do in this day. Your eyes show that you truly are expressing the smile, the laugh, the just about anything.

Wonderful shots dear and I know a certain wife who is making ooh, aah noises over the earrings, so i will get her over to the etsy page.
